. do you want to know what is more expensive than those wars? the george w. bush tax cuts are more expensive than those wars. here again is the financial cost of the wars, which started in 2001, and here is the financial cost of the tax cuts, which started that same year. both are staggeringly expensive. but of the two, the bush tax cuts are worse. and of course, the combination of the two of them together is stupifying. it is a nightmare. it's the kind of thing that can send the world's most powerful economy from having hundreds of billions of dollars in surplus to instead having hundreds of billions of dollars in deficit. and that's even before the economy blew up entirely thanks to the wall street meltdown at the end of the bush presidency. the bush tax cuts were so expensive that they just gutted the national budget right in time for the great recession downturn that almost took us out entirely. now we're more than a decade on from that. the iraq war is over as of just exactly a year ago. the bush tax cuts were all extended for one more year last year after they reached their t

figure. he had served as chief of staff to george tenet when george tenet under george bush developed their torture and secret prison program. john brennan's association with the torture and secret prison program of the george bush era of the cia is what sunk his chances for being picked as director of the cia at the start of the obama presidency. it's kind of weird. it's almost a con foreign concept in american modern politics that the left might block something from happening, but it's true. liberals thought obama stopping the torture program wasn't enough. that people tarred by association with that program should not be promoted, that there should be political accountability for people who were close to the torture policy. liberals raised enough noise about john brennan's potential nomination to run the cia in 2008 and 2009 that it never happened. at least it never happened in the first obama term. now it is happening in the second obama term. now apparently with the official nomination of john brennan to lead the cia today, now apparently we know that the white house has decided

across all of the presidencies, again, from roosevelt to george w. bush and a series of lessons. lesson number one is moved fast. the concluding snippet of the lesson goes like this, the day after the election is savvy health adviser to announce to the president-elect and says mr. or madame president, triet we are almost out of time. when you win an election for a very brief moment, you have to see enormous amount of capital. that capital you lose that capital every single day and most presidents come into office and forget that. they think the people were chosen for the people that selected me that means they selected my agenda and that's true for about six months that agenda will dominate washington. after about july of the first year what's everybody talking about? the midterm election. everybody's running for the midterm and all the capital that you gained is gone. some presidents get this. johnson got it, george w. bush got it, she was very, very shrewd about cramming things through, and we believe the barack obama got it partially because she dragged the research. we have reason t

changes it some very bad proposals within the bush tax breaks of 91 and 93. instead of racing tax raising taxes on dividends we only took it up to 20%. by and large the president wanted $1.6 trillion in new revenue. this comes out at about $620 billion. which takes us to where your introduction leads us. and that is the republicans are very clear that as the debt ceiling a approaches, their demand will be cuts in veterans, social security medicare, medicaid, and nutrition programs vitally needed by americans' working and middle class. >> eliot: you perfectly stated the equation. i probably would have come down on the other side because it seems to me that the risk inherent in the negotiation were about to undertake with the republicans on the debt ceiling is so fraught that i worry that the 620 trillion-dollar in revenue that the president got may not be worth the price and maybe he could have gotten more revenue and get the republicans to say yes to the debt ceiling if he applied more pressure after we had gone off the cliff even if for a previous period of time. >> i certainly agree he
